Web Site Advertising
Last updated: 7/26/03

Q. I thought about putting some advertising on my pages to help cover costs, but I am not sure who to go with... ?

A. The Internet ad market is absolutely terrible (6/3/02 ) and has been for all of 2001 and 2002. You would not make enough to pay your bills, let alone make it worth your time to run banners. You need a lot more traffic before it becomes time to look for ad agencies (at least 30,000 - 100,000 impressions/month). Most decent agencies would reject your request to join, at present, with the volume you have (forgot what he had for monthly page impressions, but I believe it was below 30,000). Hopefully, conditions will improve as the industry matures and the economy gets better.
